Profotos Staff Evaluation:
Michael Oakes, has made an impressive career out of sports photography.
Michael's images have been published in several leading sports
magazines in Australia and abroad, during his relatively short
career. The composition and intensity captured within Michael's
images is very exceptional and at the top of its league.
One item of interest, which jumped out at our staff, was when
we learned that Michael is a self-taught photographer, who never
had any formal schooling in photography! The images in Michael's
portfolio are representative of the best images from the best
photography schools around. Dedication and perseverance have
definitely paid-off for Michael's work, as many national, as
well as international publishers now recognize his work as being
part of the best in this field.
Our staff thoroughly enjoyed browsing through the portfolio
of this exceptional sports photographer, and we believe that
you will too!
